Repeated failure to reinstall CR in dualboot mode after Windows Creators update

    At the risk of asking the obvious - it you don't want to use Windows, why not just make a backup of your Windows drive and then install CloudReady standalone?

    Dear Forrest, I have been working on Chrome OS only for a year now but I still encounter the client that is not willing to share documents on the cloud, so it is still very convenient to be able to boot into Windows every other week and open MS Office... Simply buying a Chromebook might also be a solution, but again, I feel really attached to Cloudready: the convenience of the dualboot plus the speed of Chromium on what was a high end laptop not that long ago...

    By the way, my first reinstallation attempts failed because I had less than 32GB on the main partition. But once I solved that, I was still stuck.

    When you go through that process, do you see any errors or feedback on the cmd line that you can share? Maybe that can explain things.

     

    Also, have you re-confirmed since your major Windows update that hibernation is off?

    Yes, hibernation is off (done through the cmd line, powercfg.exe /hibernate off)

    Went again through the "sudo ntfsfix" procedure: I copied all the errors on the shared doc with the logs
    I just tried again and still had the same installation failure

    Thanks
